Don't miss a visit to one of England's most iconic places: St. Paul's Cathedral. You'll explore Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece at your leisure, with the help of an audio/video guide that shares the cathedral's fascinating history and tales of historic events, including how the church survived the Blitz in World War II, while a touchscreen displays close-up photos and interviews with cathedral experts.
See all of St. Paul's Cathedral, a must-see building that rises up into the London sky, on a self-guided tour. Designed by the famous English architect Sir Christopher Wren, the current cathedral was completed in 1708, following the destruction of the old St. Paul's Cathedral by the Great Fire of London in 1666. The cathedral has always been associated with important events of the British Kingdom, including the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations and Queen Elizabeth II's 80th birthday service.
With your entrance ticket, step inside and pick up your audio/video guide, available in nine languages (see list below). You'll tour the cathedral on your own, listening to the audio commentary and using your touchscreen to get historical insights and crisp details about the cathedral's role throughout England's history.
Start at the Crypt, with its memorials, tombs and monuments of famous Britons like Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Climb the stairs to the Gallery of Whispers and its magnificent view of the cathedral, the outer Stone Gallery and finally the Golden Gallery and its panoramic views of the capital.
As you walk, admire the gigantic dome, sparkling mosaics, intricate stone carvings and incredible views across the central nave towards 'The Quire' aisle.
